In May 2015 we are launching the very first Planetary Tantra Retreats anywhere in the world! For the first time ever, tantrikas and warriors, students and telestes from all over the planet will be able to come together to share, learn and gather intent. These retreats are for people who are seriously interested in Planetary Tantra. No previous experience is required, but no tourists please!
We are planning four retreats in 2015, scheduled for Beltane, Summer Solstice, Lammas and Autumn Equinox. Each retreat includes a combination of skills-based workshops, discussion and hands-on learning for four to five hours a day, focusing on rekindling our instincts and competencies as human animals and Kalika Warriors. The rest of the time is for relaxation, pleasure and exploration – as you choose.
This year we are working around three key themes:
- Gaian Permaculture: working with intent to plan and co-create a vegetable and medicine garden with Gaia, where ever you live.
- Nurturing earth and body: clearing the way ‘to love the earth as though it were your own body”.
- Developing clairaudience: tuning into Dakini Channels and practising animal telepathy
There will be opportunity for discussing personal PT practice and working with the Shakti Cluster, developing desire-based goal setting and practising cording. How do you want to take PT forward in your life? See Planetary Tantra for a little background on how we came to PT practice and what it means in our lives.
We will also discuss the Kalika War Party and the Thunderbird Formation and what that means to us; we are in the Bhudevi Band, so this is a place where warriors will gather.
John Lash will join us by skype during each retreat for a group ‘tutorial’. He is planning to be here in person for our very first retreat and we are having a Beltane Feast on the 2nd May, to honour him and his work and to celebrate our launch.
This is a nature retreat, where you will be close to the earth and most of our activities are outside. We are in a beautiful rural location, over-looking the Courel mountains, about 10 miles from the nearest town of Monforte de Lemos, in Galica, Northwest Spain. The summer days are hot and the nights relatively cool – bring layers. This part of Spain is very green and not like the coast. There are many beautiful places to walk through the woods and across the fields, or just sit and enjoy. Our location is very secluded without neighbours. See How to Find Us.
Our aim is to provide an experience that is within Nature, but comfortable and a delight for the senses. We have two Norwegian accommodation tents (one of men and one for women), that are used for disaster relief situations, with normal headroom, a closing door, proper beds and bedding. Each one sleeps four, in two compartments. We have several smaller, camping tents, or you can bring your own if you don’t want to share. We have an outside shower with plenty of hot water and tree bogs. You will need to bring your own towels.
Our water is from our well and Galician water is said to be some of the purest in the world. We are not connected to mains sewage, so we ask you to bring organic toiletries to use while you are here. (We do provide what we use here ourselves and will also show you how to make it.)
The Terma of Gaia Awakening is and will always be free to access and anyone can choose to practice Planetary Tantra at anytime. These retreats are an optional adjunct to private practice and an opportunity for practitioners and warriors to gather, learn, teach and share experiences. We would love to be able to run these retreats for free, but we don’t have the money to be able to do that. However, we are a registered non-profit organisation and the retreats will be run on a not-for-profit basis. This means that delegate fees are set to cover operational and labour costs and any surplus at the end of the year will be put into supporting future retreats.
